$5 Minimum Spend Removed From PlayStation Network

Sony’s insistence on a $5 minimum top-up for its PlayStation Store has been a sore talking point for a long time, but that’s all changing.

Previously, if you wanted to buy something for less than $5, you would have to top up your digital wallet with a minimum of $5. So if a game cost a $3 (flash sales, people, flash sales) then you’d be left with $2 in your wallet. Now, however, you don’t need to leave money sitting around doing nothing as you don’t need to top up by a minimum amount anymore.

If a game, avatar, or microtransaction is less than a fiver, you’ll only deposit what’s needed for the transaction. It’s not a massive change, but it’s a nice one nonetheless.
